Pleased

Robert M., Newegg
21 February 2010
  • Summary: I specifically wanted a frame with a nice display and long display intervals. I didn't want a constantly changing slideshow with busy transitions. I just wanted a frame that showed a few different pictures throughout the day. With that simple requirement, this frame works very nicely.
  • Pros: Very nice display, nice frame, versatile media options. Auto on-off timer saves power.
  • Cons: Biggest "complaint" is that the "random" play function seems to play a few pictures frequently, and others rarely get displayed. Longest display time for one image is 60 minutes. Touch controls are a bit confusing/inconsistent. I often have to 'play' with the controls to make a change as the cont...

good but some pain

Jon S., Newegg
2 February 2010
  • Summary: Overall very nice. Decent quality. Would be nice to directly connect to the computer with the USB.
  • Pros: Excellent color and contrast Good menu system with adequate selections Touch panel on front, hidden but accessible Interchangeable picture frame
  • Cons: No direct import of photos to internal memory via USB Using a memory card as a proxy to move pictures from the computer is kludgy and slow. Easier to just load re-sized photos on memory card and plug in

Classy wood frame, Good value if on sale!

Anonymous, Newegg
3 January 2010
  • Summary: The touch controls on the side are OK. Workable for me, but maybe someone less tech-savvy would have trouble with them. Having said that, we gave one of these as a gift to our folks and they seem to manage OK.
  • Pros: Works right out of the box - no complicated setup - just stick in a memory card, power up, and go. The wood frame is one of the best I've seen. Resolution is adequate for the size (don't go lower!) Finally, the holiday sale price on this made it totally worthwhile.
  • Cons: 1 red stuck pixel (probably not worth the hassle of a return though.) The edge of the screen is visible slightly on the right edge. ...but my wife said she didn't notice these at all.

Nice way to present favorite photos without 'overdoing it'

  • Summary: I received this as a wedding gift this month. Before I had no interest in a digital frame (I didn't register for this gift). Within a couple weeks my view has changed. This is a fun 'toy' to show off all your photos without having a table full of frames.

great frame, decent viewing angle

Robert K., Newegg
30 December 2009
  • Summary: It does not come with a manual. YOU DO NOT NEED ONE. It's a simple digital photo frame. The most complicated part of setup was removing a stupid little sticker they had advertising the screen's ability to fit in most any 8x10 frame. AC adapter came in 2 parts? Like..
  • Pros: Good amount of storage space; box claims you can fit 4000 pictures with just the internal memory. Haven't put this to the test, but honestly, even if that is exaggerating by 10x, that's still a lot of pictures... Stock frame can be removed, and a frame of your choice (8x10) put instead. Good for ...
  • Cons: Viewing angle, -1 egg. I guess you don't think about this too much with normal pictures, but for a screen/monitor I tend to be a little more picky. Direct line of sight is excellent; +/- 30 degrees from the normal is quite good. Anything else, you kind of crane your neck to get a better angle. In...

Best frame for the price

jacob b., Newegg
30 December 2009
  • Summary: I still love newegg! Fast shipping and great price!
  • Pros: Amazing quality and nice features. There are tons of ways you can show your pictures. You can have it auto turn on and off at certain times. I bought this one over others because it has auto resize on your pics. Beware not all frames do and you would have to edit them on your PC which is a pain a...
  • Cons: I took 1 star off because newegg packaged this poorly. They filled up the box with popcorn to the top and put the fram on top of it instead of putting the product in the middle of the foam. The box was of course damaged on one corner and so was the frame's packaging. Phew... the frame is ok so far.

Digital Frame a Hit for Grandparents

Idea Lady, Amazon
24 December 2009
  • Summary: They LOVE having their family pictures and memories visible at the touch of a button. . . proudly displayed to enjoy. The technology savvy in the family are pleased with the crisp display and did the setting up of the photos. Good gift choice!

Pretty cool

eli, Amazon
5 December 2009
  • Summary: This is my first digital frame, although I played with a few of them at a retailer. I bought this for the grandparents to preload for christmas and send off into the night. I wanted something 4:3 (I can't stand how accepting people have become of squished heads in the name of "HD" )and that limited...

Great looking frame

Eric, Amazon
21 November 2009
  • Summary: There were several reasons I purchased the Kodak EasyShare D830 frame. It actually looks like a "real" picture frame even without replacing the outer frame which is possible with this model. For me, this was a big selling point. It has a 4x3 aspect ratio so there are no black bars on the picture.
